Sites in New York City that have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places for their significance to LGBT history are tracked here. These sites are also listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places.

We are currently working on more listings and will update this page with links to our announcement posts, where you will also find links to nomination reports. Since Stonewall was listed before our project began, we have linked directly to its nomination report here.

We also recommend looking through the groundbreaking, nationwide document, LGBTQ America: A Theme Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer History, published by the National Park Service in October 2016. The study includes a New York City chapter written by our co-director Jay Shockley.
